Artist Spotlight - Anemic Angel

Looking like concept art for the new Hunter S Thompson novel ‘Fear and Loathing in Viridian City‘, these three pieces depicting Pikachu, Squirtle, and Charmander in caricature acid-trip style are as nightmarish as they are awesome. Anemic Angel, the artist, whose work and personal blog can be found here, draws on influences as far ranging as Walt Disney and Alan Moore in his work, but the clear influence for these pieces comes from the cartoonist Ralph Steadman, famous for his disorientating characters and political caricatures.

Zombie Playground

Independent video game concept by artist Jason Chan who has started a kickstarter campaign to get this in development. Here is the official pitch -

You take on the role of a kid during a zombie apocalypse as seen through his or her imagination.  Your school is overrun by the undead, and it’s up to you and your friends to do whatever it takes to survive!  

Zombie Playground is an online, team based, action arena game with RPG elements.  Gameplay will be deep, challenging, and rewarding.  The game combines childhood nostalgia with horrific monsters, visceral combat, and a unique atmosphere straight out of a child’s nightmares.  We do want to make it very clear: this is not a game for kids!

The mood we want to capture Zombie Playground is the feeling that you had as a child when you were completely immersed in your imagination fighting monsters, shooting guns, and doing things that you thought were cool from your favorite movies, comics, and video games.  For Zombie Playground, the setting is inspired from popular Zombie franchises and will take place in the local middle school.  We aim to deliver all of the horror and tension associated with zombie titles, but spiced up with some good old childhood nostalgia.  It can be easily explained in the following formula:

Goonies + Attack the Block + Walking Dead = Zombie Playground

This has incredible style and I would hope it would conjure up the cult status similar to the likes of Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 dead! Here is the Kickstarter link make it happen people
